Face of Courage; Kids Living With Cancer to air on Nickelodeon Sunday January 24-
Cancer. When children hear the word, what do they think? It may be scary, but today, a diagnosis of cancer is not
necessarily a death sentence. Nick News with Linda Ellerbee explores the world of kids who are living with cancer on The Face
of Courage: Kids Living with Cancer, premiering Sunday, Jan. 24, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. The road these kids travel
is not easy; it is pitted with fear, pain and loss. But also it is a road paved with hope, strength, courage and even humor.
They have been where no kid should have to go, and they have survived to share their stories – and their courage –
with the rest of us.
“All of these kids live as if the cancer were never coming back,” says Ellerbee,
an 18-year cancer survivor. “Cancer is a part of my past. That’s a fact. It’s a part of my present because
I choose to speak about it, and for the same reason, it will be a part of my future. But it is not who I am. It is not who
any of us is.”
